getting harder and harder. Not that long ago in the history of humans, and up to a few hundred years ago, many women simply lay down, and had a healthy baby. Then, along came midwives to help, as societies evolved. Later came medical doctors.
One was a man named Semmelweiss. He worried about the large number of women, treated by male doctors. He went around telling fellow doctors that they had to wash their hands before a birthing to prevent purpura, a bacterial infection. He was ridiculed by the local medical society, and hounded out of the profession. He was right, but he died an outcast and broke. Not many years after that, Pasteur discovered bacteria, and those doctors scratched their heads, saying “Maybe Semmelweiss was right?”
Today is not that much different. Too many MD’s are “educationally handicapped” by wrong things that they learned in med school (usually many years previously from text books even older). They are further handicapped by reading (and believing) medical journal information. All Medical Journals are entirely supported by drug advertising, and cannot ever publish anything favorable to vitamins or other supplements common to the Alternate Health field or they lose their income.
